I mean to go look at this diamond twill...
Sounds like a re.seller who buys from these guys. I got mine direct at
great prices, they do bulk as well if you
can be patient and wait if they do not have enough in stock. on them to
put the order together.
Usually a couple of weeks for 10 or more. But well worth the wait and
the blankets are great for cloaks. LOL.
Here is the direct link. Shhh it's a big secret kept by their
re-sellers. LOL. http://www.loricamos.vizz.pl/tkanieuk.html

Looks great to me! Pretty much looks like this down to the size of the repeats:
-which was based on the thread/pattern repeat counts at the higher end of the finer fabrics found from the period (gaps between repeats are still there because it was a sample piece and only lightly washed).
